Kobe Bryant is STILL the Finals MVP!

I know this is an old topic but it keeps coming up. People are still bitching about  Kobe getting the Finals MVP. Their argument: “He only shot 6-for-24. How is that an MVP?”  This 6-for-24 mantra is big with all the Kobe Haters out there and especially for one Boston-loving douchebag over at ESPN.

So, once and for all, let’s take a look at the “disappointing” Game 7 performance of one Kobe Bean Bryant.

While it is true that he shot 6-for24 it is also true that he scored 23 points, to lead ALL scorers. That’s right, even with that “horrible” shooting night Kobe still was the high scorer for the game.

Let that sink in for a second. The Finals MVP scores the most points in the most important game of the Finals. He also scored 10 of those points in the 4th quarter. That’s being a clutch player and dare I say, MVP-like.

Since his shot was obviously not dropping, Kobe decided to put his stamp on the game in another way: rebounding. He wound up with 15 rebounds for that game. Just to put that into perspective for you; that’s more rebounds than Kevin Garnett and Paul Peirce COMBINED! (Together they had 13.)

To put it simply, Kobe outscores every one, takes over the 4th quarter and out rebounds Boston’s top two players.

So, if all you can say is “6-for-24” that means two things; you’re a liar and you desperately don’t want people to know the truth or you’re an idiot who can’t even do a simple Google search to find the facts. If you work for ESPN I’d say it’s a little of both.
